APQ Global (ticker: APQ LN) is a global emerging markets growth company with interests across Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Our objective is to steadily grow earnings to deliver attractive returns and capital growth to our shareholders. We achieve this through a combination of revenue generating operating activities and investing in growing businesses across emerging markets. We run a well-diversified and liquid portfolio, take strategic stakes in selected businesses and plan to take operational control of companies through the acquisition of minority and majority stakes in companies with a focus on emerging markets.
2016 was a defining year for our company. On 11 August 2016, we raised £78 million on the Channel Islands Stock Exchange, and we were admitted to trading on the London Stock Exchange’s AIM Market two weeks later. These landmark developments give us the resources to focus on growing dividends and substantial capital growth for our shareholders in the years to come, and we want to thank those involved for their support – not only our distinguished group of institutional and private shareholders, but also our Board of Directors and the management team who worked hard to make this happen.
